The relationship between hydrogen permeation and sulfide stress cracking susceptibility of OCTG materials at different temperatures and PH values Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • © 1997 by NACE International. The sulfide stress cracking susceptibility of high strength steels used for oil grade tubulars (OCTG) was found to correlate with the hydrogen concentration inside the metal, in equilibrium with the H2S saturated solution at different temperatures and pH values. This correlation can be applied to extrapolate laboratory tests results, obtained using standardized solutions, to actual field conditions.
